Police have arrested a 34-year-old person at Sameeragama in Mundel for allegedly strangulating a youth to death.

The victim was 16-years old and he had stopped attending schools from last year.

The investigations revealed that the suspect had consumed liquor with the victim last evening (20) and thereafter both of them had gone to a coconut plantation in the area.

Later, since the youth failed to return, the villagers had gone into the coconut estate in search of him.

It led to the recovery of his body.

Thereafter, the villagers have assaulted the suspect, who is not being treated at the Mundel Hospital.

The Acting Magistrate of Puttalam visited the crime scene. He had ordered the police to report the details to courts.

Police said investigations are also conducting to ascertain whether the suspect had committed any sexual crime to the victim.
